MAX function

Returns the largest value in a set of values.

Syntax

MAX(number1,number2,...)

Number1,number2,...     are 1 to 30 numbers for which you want to find the maximum value.

Remarks

  • You can specify arguments that are numbers, empty arguments, logical values, or text representations of numbers. Arguments that are error values or text that cannot be translated into numbers cause errors.

  • If logical values and text must not be ignored, use MAXA instead.

  • If the arguments contain no numbers, MAX returns 0 (zero).
